With Quora blog, brands and individuals got a great new way to improve brand visibility.
Companies, bloggers, product can create their blog on Quora, and like they promote their blog, they could use Quora for cross-promotion of their brand. Also, it could become a great way for people to engage with your brand. I will share more on this, in upcoming posts. Also, needless to say Quora could be a good source for traffic too. Specially, if you are new in Social media, and trying to build your online presence, Quora blog is a nice place to start with.
Blogs on Quora are great for people who (1) don’t have a big, established online presence already and (2) don’t want to do the time-intensive, heavy lifting of marketing their blog and slowly building an audience. If you are a good writer but don’t have thousands of Twitter followers or a big audience for your blog, Quora is an ideal place to write. Your blog will be discovered quickly without you having to do any work besides writing. Writing one great post on Quora will attract a big audience, no matter how many people already know or follow you.
Many bloggers already use Quora boards to re-post their blogs and expand their audience. Blogs on Quora makes this republishing experience even better.
